Director Eugene Jarecki has put together an incredibly creative look at the life and times of The King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Aron Presley. Part bio picture, part fan film and all about America, Jarecki borrowed Elvis’s Rolls Royce and put celeb admirers like Alec Baldwin, Ethan Hawke, Ashton Kutcher, Emily Lou Harris and John Hiatt inside the car to pontificate on the significance of the Elvis celebrity, bigger and brighter at its time than any other. The film is simply a truth about who and what America is, through one of the biggest personalities it ever produced, for better or worse.

The Chicago Media Project is the presenter of DOC 10 at the Davis Theater, 4614 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago. For more information about the festival, click here.
